Episode 1 -- "Treasure Island", The Mercury Theatre On the Air
Welcome to Old-Time Radio Essentials, a new podcast wherein a specific episode from a selected OTR series is presented, and then discussed by three co-hosts: Pete Lutz, Jane St. John and Paul Arbisi; to determine whether or not it meets the following criteria:
1. Is it truly representative of that series? (Can anyone point to it and say, "Yes, that is what [NAME OF SERIES] was all about.")
2. Is it an episode worthy of inclusion in any and every OTR aficionado's private collection?
So with this in mind, we three bring you, as our first installment, the 2nd episode of Orson Welles's Mercury Theatre series, "Treasure Island", originally broadcast July 18th, 1938. We'll introduce the show, play it in its entirety, then discuss it at length. Thanks for joining us, and we hope you enjoy it!

Because I am unable to post more than one episode per month on my free account at Podcast Garden, I am posting this here and then on June 1st I'll post it there. But I couldn't let this wait any longer -- it's a wonderful interview with one of the most talented and sought-after voice actors I know, Tanja Milojevic. In this installment we chat about her many roles over the years, her personal accomplishments, our many mutual friends and acquaintances, and her goals for the future. We actually chatted for more than an hour, and the conversation came freely as if we were two old pals. But here are the best 53 minutes of that conversation. Enjoy!
Please listen to Pete's special announcement about the future of the Narada Audio Drive-In, Pulp-Pourri Theatre, and Jake Dimes Range Detective.
We're back! At long last, the 4th installment of NADI is here and ready to enjoy!
